Quick English-to-Latin Translation Help

I'm looking for the Latin translation of the phrase "Go after what you want." After some initial asking around, I've landed on "sequere quod vis."

Is this correct, or am I way off base? Appreciate any help I can get!

That phrase is correct.

If I may make a couple of suggestions, I would intensify sequere by using
persequere. Sequere means "follow", but persequere intensifies it to
"pursue". Also, I would intensify vis to cupis. Vis means "you want" or
"you wish" but cupis intensifies it to "you desire".

So . . .
Persequere quod cupis.

I'm getting this tattoo as a banner across my chest so I want to make sure its correct translation! The phrase is ... "We are eternal, all this pain is an illusion." ....so far I have found "Illusion his nos aetemos dolor" ....can anyone confirm this for me please?

I can confirm that it is dead wrong.
Looks like it came from one of those online automated translators.
